Each of our Taste Test Reviews comes with the original recipe and the tester's notes/changes listed with the ingredient list in blue. We hope you enjoy!


The perfect dessert for a warm May evening, this strawberry shortcake trifle will be a yummy cap to dinner. Each ingredient works beautifully with the others to create a treat you will not soon forget. I bought a loaf pan sized angel food cake at the store and it worked well with half-ing the rest of the ingredients. If you want to serve individual dessert cups for each guest at a party I recommend preparing the trifle in Mason jars. The jars provide a simple to serve solution each guest is sure to enjoy.
